Fighting for a better future? We need your help.

Creating a more equitable world takes a lot of time and energy, but at Kiva we’re in it for the long haul. 100% of money lent on Kiva goes to funding loans. That means we rely on donations from people like you to make this work possible. For a limited time, if you donate $35 or more, a $25 bonus will be added to your account (you’ll get an email once it’s there).

Hassan's story

Hassan is a 44-year-old married man, the father of four children. He has been a barber for 27 years. Hassan is always smiling and optimistic, and he works hard to make sure he can meet almost all of the needs of his children. Hassan applied for a loan from Kiva's partner Al Majmoua in order to pay for his children's supplemental school charges and school supplies. He will also add a bedroom for his children, to make sure that they have healthy living conditions. Hassan works on attracting the attention of his customers to cosmetics products they may need, which will increase his income and improve his standard of living. He hopes to keep on improving his business as much as he can, to take it to a higher level.
